Soggy Bottom Boys
From: O Brother, Where Art Thou?
Members: Ulysses Everett McGill, Pete, Delmar O’Donnell, Tommy Johnson
With a guitarist who sold his soul to the Devil and three escaped convicts—one who certainly didn’t get hit by no dat-gum train—their odyssey to return home is riddled with danger. The Soggy Bottom Boys’ constant sorrow spawned an IRL resurgence in popularity for bluegrass music.
From: Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure; Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey; Bill & Ted Face the Music
Members: William “Bill” S. Preston, Esq. and Ted “Theodore” Logan
You know your band is going to be significant when people travel across time to ensure you make your music. Bill and Ted may have had more skill with air guitars than actual guitars, but their journey through time taught them how to rock—and pass their history test to keep the band together. Excellent!
